Squeaky Wheel is thrilled to announce a call for submissions for our Annual Animation Fest!  In its 16th year, we are proud to continue a festival showcasing artworks made in a diverse variety of animation techniques such as stop-motion, claymation, 3D animation, hand-painted film, special effects, and motion graphics.  The festival will be held at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and is intended for all ages. Past festivals have showcased work from both rising artists as well as established artists.

We encourage Indigenous people, Black people, people of color, women, LGBTQQIP2SAA+, and gender non-conforming people to apply. The residency welcomes applications from emerging to established artists and researchers.

  • Multiple submissions per artist are accepted.
  • Each individual submission should not exceed 10 minutes.
  • There is no submission fee.
  • All selected artists will receive a modest screening fee of $50 per selected film. (International applicants must have a Paypal account to receive their screening fee).
